HONG KONG, May 20, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — New Selby Jennings research reveals over 60% are still confident about their job security over the next six months in Asia. Despite the background of an uncertain economic environment, research shows majority still receiving bonuses, close to 60% of North Asia respondents are receiving or have received an increased bonus this year compared to last year in North Asia, while 53% of respondents are receiving or have received an increased bonus this year compared to last year in South East Asia.
Asia – First In First Out
“Asia is an important market for banks, financial institutions. They also know they need good people – those who can demonstrate the ability to add value in either a bull or bear market – to take them through whatever challenges lie ahead,” said Mr Abimanu Jeyakumar, Head of Selby Jennings, North Asia
“In the wake of Covid-19, digitisation and transformation in FS will be further deepened and accelerated,” according to Cheryl Koh, Head of Selby Jennings, South East Asia. “With a talent pool that is becoming increasingly specialised and digitally skilled, this could have positive ramifications for productivity and industry, and lay the foundations for future economic growth.”
“Volatility means opportunity. We’re all expecting bounce-back in activity, and this means we now need the right people in the right seats for when that happens. So we’re still getting headcount approved for hiring in Hong Kong banking,” said Mr. Jeyakumar.
Reports are available on Selby Jennings website.
